Thank you for posting these entries about Taiwan romance movies. I haven't seen this film with Lin Feng Chiao and Ke Chun Hsiung, must be one of the older films that they made, as I know that Ke Chun Hsiung used to be married to another Taiwanese actress, Chang Meiyao. Please post more reviews of Taiwan romance movies, I enjoy seeing the differences between them and the bigger budget SB productions.

Hi Joyce,

Glad that you enjoy these Taiwan romance movies related posts; will continue to post more of this genre.

' The Shining Spring ' was made in the mid-70s after Joan Lin had established her reputation in the romance movies genre. One of the child actors had even won an award in the Golden Horse Film Fest with his adorable role in this film.
